CODATA Task Groups 2021 – 2023
Task Groups are groups of scientists, researchers and data experts who work together on a specific problem or theme to advance the state of data management and to advance science and improve our world. Task Groups are proposed according to a procedure defined by the CODATA Constitution and they are approved and endorsed by the General Assembly. They are an important means through which CODATA delivers on its mission and Strategic Initiatives, including the Decadal Programme: Making Data Work for Cross-Domain Grand Challenges.
The following Task Groups were approved or renewed at 32nd CODATA General Assembly, held virtually on 15-16 November 2021.
